The piss poor players started in 2014, by longtime friends Dustin Bones - singer/guitarist, and washboards/backup vocals- Qza.
The song writing and attitude came from the punk rock they listened to growing up, the music inspired by the heartbreak, outlaw country they heard from they're grandparents. They took these two inspirations along with a lifetime of trials and tribulations and put it in song. They later grew the players side of the band by joining with other forces, ian booyaki and noah tyson from the band Highlonesome, and Milwaukee mike on drums, and brian the cudahy cutter on drums, these 6 musicians would record the first album Poor & Lonesome. They currently have a new album in the works featuring the same musicians with the addition of Jason aka Big island from the hay shakers appearing on tracks playing the upright bass.
